This is a lovely book ... the photography is gorgeous and the descriptions written about each highlighted wild ingredient hero relate their qualities with vividness that makes me hungry. If I ever happen across one of these ingredients, I will pounce on it with a cry of triumph and RUSH home to find this book and make something delectable. I will do this over the protestations of any shocked, concerned husbands or friends or friends' husbands who may be hovering nearby worrying about toxicity.Was this review helpful?

Like the fine presentations at better restaurants, this book takes your breath away. Sara Remington's exquisite photographs draw you in instantly. Who knew mushrooms were so photogenic? Seasonally arranged, written by Connie Greens with recipes by Sarah Scott and foreward by Thomas Keller of the famed French Laundry, there are definitely some recipes you'll want to try. And Green's distinctive siren voice makes you want to follow her deep into the forest, scanning the forest floor as you go. Anyone can make the Wild Spring Salad with Creamy Chive Dressing like I have but a number of the recipes are ones I'd prefer to try at upscale restaurants rather than make myself. But no matter: I find those advanced recipes inspirational. A good-sized chunk of the book is about mushrooms. I've never met a chanterelle I didn't like so Louisiana-Style Chanterelle Hash is a definite "try" for me. A nice change from the usual foraging books.Was this review helpful?
